London 2012 Games readiness

Ready or not?

With London 2012 rapidly approaching, organisations are beginning to consider the impact of the Olympic and Paralympic Games on business operations. Organisations will inevitably be impacted by the Games as the world comes to the UK and in particular to London. This will create a variety of risks, issues and opportunities, all of which need to be considered by businesses as they prepare their operations for ‘business as unusual’. Lessons learned from previous Games indicate organisations may face disruption to supply and travel, and will need to review security and consider a range of other factors that may impact their business operations.

Deloitte has designed an innovative programme to help clients prepare for London 2012, share ideas and some of the cost of the required planning to manage business operations during Games-time. This programme will allow clients to more effectively understand the impact of London 2012 through a series of workshops and briefing sessions, based on our unique insight and experience from our work in the planning and preparation for the Games. Additionally, organisations will have the opportunity to ‘experience’ the potential impact on business operations through a series of well researched exercises and simulations to evaluate plan effectiveness.

Deloitte is the exclusive provider of professional advisory services to The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), providing a bespoke programme of services to support the delivery of London 2012. In addition, we are supporting the Greater London Authority’s (GLA) Olympic Readiness Programme which will help to get London ready to host the Games. This provides a unique insight to some of the resourcing and logistical challenges that businesses are likely to face in the run-up to and during the Games period.

Deloitte has previous experience in planning and preparations for other major events including:

  • Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games
  • 2010 Singapore Youth Olympic Games
  • 2010 FIFA World Cup
  • Tour de France
  • Athens 2004 Olympic and Paralympic Games
